Default Recession is Over !!!!!!!!

I am declaring the recession is over. Oil already in $70s. I guess this is the right time to buy property in Dubai with price down by 50%. Job market may take a few more months to recover.

Most of us on here sincerely hope that your optimism is not misplaced...and your qualifications in economics are?

things do seem to be looking up...even in my business, we're getting lots more people approaching us, and the signs are much more positive than, say, a couple of months ago...here's hoping so anyway...

MM, xx

Not sure what you mean HK? I don't have any plastic to spend?!

I said "some good news" because the "recession" has been horrible for a LOT of people....... even for people that have no loans etc.

So whats your point?

My Qualifications in economics is next to zero and I don't believe in any economists any more. They were always wrong...always think rationally and make your own decision.

Lionheart says that our FTSE stock portfolio hit rock bottom in March and has risen over 20% since then with over a dozen mining/energy stocks up over 100%. As an example Jubilee Platinum worth 7p in March is now 55p. On that evidence, there are positive signs of the recession being over...but watch out for the "dead cat bounce" he says. Fingers crossed.
